HITECSensors has pioneered the design and manufacture of load cells, strain gauge-based force and torque sensors, instruments and complete test systems for nearly 50 years. It is headquartered in Massachusetts, USA, with specialist facilities in Michigan and Sri Lanka. Its broad range of sensor technology is applied to drive innovation of custom sensor solutions. Its devices are engineered for harsh environments and used to control interactions between operators and critical machinery in medical, aerospace, industrial, automotive, energy and many other applications.
Interface produces nearly 50 types of reaction torque transducers and rotary torque transducers. All our torque transducers are precision-machined and use our proprietary torque sensors for the most accurate data possible. A torque sensor, is a transducer that converts a torsional mechanical input into an electrical output signal. A reaction torque sensor measures static torque, and rotary measures dynamic torque. Rotary torque transducers are used in applications where the torque transducer must rotate when attached to a spinning shaft. A rotary torque transducer provides a method of getting the signal off of the rotating element without an attached cable. We can help you find mounts from pedestals to shafts to flanges, and drives vary from hex to square to pulley, with more styles in between.
